30 August 2016 Current Affairs: Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti has launched the central government's UJALA scheme in the state with the distribution of LED bulbs among people.
The National LED programme was launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in January 2015. Under this scheme consumer can buy five LED bulbs at the rate of Rs 20 each by showing monthly electricity bills or ID cards.In case of purchase of more than five bulbs, consumers need to pay Rs 95 per bulb.
Government acknowledges the great savings that the scheme shall bring to the electricity bills of the consumers and has made sincere efforts to ensure that the people of Jammu and Kashmir have access to this national scheme.
Highlighting the importance of energy conservation through the spread of LED bulbs, Mufti said it was much more economical to conserve power, than to produce power.
As one LED bulb consumes one tenth of the energy consumed by a normal yellow bulb, we shall be saving enormous amount of energy if we are able to replace the 80 lakh inefficient bulbs in our state with LED bulbs.
The scheme will be implemented in the state by Jammu and Kashmir Power Development Department in collaboration with Energy Efficiency Services Limited (EESL).
